When a Craft Goes Horribly Wrong

Let’s keep it real, folks. Not every creation has a happy ending. Take, for instance, this experiment trying to personalize three stainless steel cups for my kids on Valentine’s day.

Evidently, spray paint, masks (that I labored over for hours!), and stainless steel don’t mix.

Only one of my kids has a name that is mass produced on pencils, cups, and their ilk, so if the other two would like to have their personal monikers on objects, well, mama’s gotta make it happen.

But not this time.
